Subscriber Testimonials

In the newsletter business, about 75% of subscribers typically defect every year.

At Brush Up on Stocks, I retain over 80% of my subscribers annually.

Here are some unsolicited testimonials from subscribers.

And finally, here is some interesting perspective for investors, in the age of click bait and vapid, online content:

Ain’t it strange the way we’re ignorant
How we seek out bad advice
How we jigger it and figure it
Mistaking value for the price
